Genethlius, (Genethlios), of Patrae, in Palestine, a Greek rhetorician, who lived between the reigns of the emperors Philippus and Constantine. He was a pupil of Mucianus and Agapetus, and taught rhetoric at Athens, where he died at the early age of twenty-eight. He was an enemy and a rival of his countryman Callinicus. Suidas (s. v. Genethlios), to whom we are indebted for this information, enumerates a variety of works which Genethlius wrote, declamations, panegyrics, and commentaries on Demosthenes; but not a trace of them has come down to us. (Comp. Eudoc. p. 1100; Hesych. Miles. s. v. Penethlios.)
